9/15/23 Football: Chi-Hi 36, Eau Claire North 23

After three setbacks in a row, the Chippewa Falls Cardinals (2-3, 1-2 Big Rivers Conference) made the short road-trip south to face the resurgent Huskies (3-2, 2-1 BRC), who were winners of three straight and in a four-way tie for first place in the Big Rivers.

Sparked by a defensive touchdown in the opening minute, Chi-Hi staked themselves a 17-0 advantage, but a resilient North team continued to battle back, coming as close as seven points down the stretch as momentum see-sawed between both squads. In the end, splash plays on special teams made the difference, as the Cards notched their first conference win of 2023.

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Senior DB Jack Zwiefelhofer tallied his fourth interception of the season - and second pick-six - as he gave Chi-Hi immediate momentum to start the game. Fellow senior DB Carter Bowe stole the show, however, flipping the field multiple times as a punt returner, and, in the second half, taking not one but two kickoffs to the house.
